POGIL, Science concepts, Collaborative skills


     The objectives of this research were 1) to compare of scientific concepts of students during the pretest and posttest, by using the POGIL learning process, and 2) to study the cooperative skills of students during their studies using the POGIL learning process.  The population was 20 students in grade 4, during the second semester in the academic year of 2019 at Ban Napoon School, Wang Chin District, Phrae Province.The instruments used to collect data were 9 learning management plans using the POGIL learning process, conceptual science test, and observation form for cooperative skills. Quantitative data were analyzed by means, percentages, gain scores, and standard deviation. The results were as follows: 1) Scientific concepts of students after study were higher than prior to learning with gain score at 62.47 %. The learning development was at a high level. And 2) Collaborative skills of students during study by using the learning POGIL has an excellent level at 93.58 %.
